Experience a new type of sailing adventure

SSV Oliver Hazard Perry is a 200 ft, three-masted, full-rigged Tall Ship. With 20 sails and 7 miles of rope on board, there is no room for idle hands when we set sail! Life on Oliver Hazard Perry means you become a part of our crew, from hauling lines, to climbing aloft, to taking the helm, you will participate in every aspect of sailing the ship. No previous sailing experience or extraordinary fitness is required, while life aboard is active and hard work, a positive attitude and sense of adventure is the only prerequisite to join!


We are pleased to be offering a course in celestial navigation on both of these 2018 voyages. The course is an additional $350 pp. Space is limited to 12 people. Be sure to select the course at registration if you wish to take it. See here for course overview

In addition to sailing on a 200-foot Tall Ship along the US coastline, you will be starting and ending your program in two amazing cities with plenty to do! Here are some suggestions for activities in these historical cities:


A voyage aboard the Tall Ship Oliver Hazard Perry is safe and can be exhilarating. But while sailing aboard Oliver Hazard Perry is an adventure, it is also comfortable: our professional chef prepares three fine meals each day, berths and cabins are comfortably furnished, the ship is air conditioned throughout and there is ample hot water for showers (although we must conserve our fresh water supply on longer passages).

Learn all about life on board here:

For overall safety and program experience, any adult over the age of 65 will be required to show proof of a medical health screening to ensure the minimum level of physical fitness is met. This must be submitted a minimum of 30 days prior to program start date.
